A Star Is Scorned


Donald Trump is a horrible person who nobody likes except racists and people OK with racists.

As a reminder that Donald Trump was a celebrity contributing nothing meaningful to society before he was a politician contributing nothing meaningful to society, he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

A testament to the public’s animosity toward Trump has been expressed on his star (which he paid $30,000 to have installed, which probably came from the Trump Foundation). Some people kick and spit on it, dogs have been allowed to relieve themselves on it, stickers have been placed on it, someone built a tiny wall around it, and it’s been spray painted, once with a Swastika (though to be fair, that may have been a supporter). Most recently, a man, described by a witness as “going to town on it,” destroyed it with a pickax. That individual has been charged, released on a $20,000 bail, and faces up to three years in prison. With charges like that you’d think he was a member of the Trump Campaign.

The city of West Hollywood decided that having a star for Trump was a bad idea and voted unanimously in a non-binding resolution to have it removed. It’s non-binding because they don’t have jurisdiction over the star. That belongs to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber released a statement that they have no plans to remove Trump’s star and that once a star is added it’s considered a part of the “historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” I suggest some people walk their dogs by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and show them how they feel about this.

Mark Hamill has a great idea. He suggests replacing the president with a princess. Princess Leia that is, as Carrie Fisher doesn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame. What? How can this be? This can’t be allowed to continue. She should have had a star light years ago, and having hers replace Trump’s would be galactic justice.

As her friend and writer Paul Slansky said, she would have loved being the face of The Resistance.

It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all.

    Why make poor Fido walk all that way to the HCOC? Do it the traditional way: collect the production of your (dog, cat, cow, kid, self, etc) into a papar bag, place it on the doorstep of the HCOC, set it on fire, ring the doorbell, then, instead of the traditional ‘running away’, stand back with your phone ready to capture the next viral video on YouTube.

    An intriguing idea, but would it really be respectful to Princess Leia to put her Star in the spot that has been forever defiled, stained, and tainted by the presence of 45*?

    1. On second thought, it might be okay if her Star was NOT flush with the pavement but was instead elevated a few feet so people wouldn’t step on it and it would symbolize that she was being placed ABOVE the Evil Spot, NOT IN it.

    2. My problem with having Carrie Fisher’s star replace Trump’s is that rabid Trumpistas would defile her star because it replaced their idol’s, and that’s a lousy way to treat a fine actress and a good woman.

  3. If 45*’s Stain… er, Star… is eventually removed, the $30,000 45* ‘paid’ for it should not be refunded but instead applied to somehow repair a small (very small, it’s only $30,000 after all) part of the immense Damage 45* has wrought.

    Fine, don’t remove it. But in the Spirit Of Historical Accuracy, it should be Modified with a Plaque listing all of 45*’s known (and suspected) transgressions (this will require using several additional ‘star slots’ to fit them all in) and of course periodically updated when 45* is Impeached, Convicted, Removed From Office, and then Tried, Convicted, and Punished for Treason.

  5. The City of Los Angeles owns the sidewalks where the “walk of fame” stars are placed and they are seriously considering removing that particular star for reasons that the smaller city council mentioned. And that was also a reminder to the Chamber of Commerce, who said that it’s never been done, that the City council of Los Angeles can have the star removed. I think it will be removed contrary to what is being said now everywhere.
